Geoscience Calendar

2021 Saskatchewan Geoscience Calendars Are Hot Off The Press!

Please purchase your copy of the 2021 Calendar to support your Society and to support local businesses.

 

Some highlights of the calendar are an acrylics painting of the historic Gunnar mine site by Gary Delaney (pictured below), a wasp in amber, landscape photo of the Frenchman valley, a thin section of kimberlite from Pikoo Lake! Also featured are our 2019 SGS President Award winner, Colin Dunn; a page on Geothermal Resources and much more. 

 

How to obtain your copy 

The calendar retails for a price of $10 (1-4 copies), $8 (5-9 copies) and $6 (>10 copies). It will be available for retail from early October until the middle of January. 

In Regina, the calendar is available each fall (starting around Oct 17) at the MacKenzie Art Gallery, the Royal Saskatchewan Museum, and at the RCMP Museum.

You can also place larger orders of the calendar online by completing an order form (click here to download).

Mission Statement

The Saskatchewan Geoscience Calendar showcases the geoscience beauty of our province. It is aimed at the general public and professional geoscientists alike, to educate them about the natural beauty our province and about the impact of geoscience on our lives and prosperity. Monthly photos feature various scenes from the 3.4 billion years of Earth history thus far recorded in the province from outcrop scale to landscape views spanning the Precambrian Shield in the north to the southern prairies. Four pages at the beginning of the calendar focus on the province's geological resources, history and landscape and also features our most recent award winners.  

 

Please submit your photos for the next Saskatchewan Geoscience Calendar 

The Saskatchewan Geological Society is always looking for submissions of photographs featuring the geoscience diversity of our province covering all corners of our province from the Cypress Hills to the Lake Athabasca region and exhibiting all scales from microphotographs to satellite images. We are seeking submissions in the following categories: 1) mineral; 2) outcrop north; 3) outcrop south; 4) fossil; 5) aerial image (Landsat, ortho, drone, etc.); 6) geological landscape north; 7) geological landscape south; 8) geological history; 9) oil & gas industry; 10) landform; 11) mineral exploration industry; 12) microscope; 13) geological art.

To get an idea of photos in previous calendars, please scroll further down on this page to take a look.

We encourage submission of one or more photos, in one or several of the above categories.

Please send your photos to:

2016 Geological Calendar of Saskatchewan - 1st edition

The idea for the Calendar was born in 2015 and a committee of SGS members (see below) worked hard to create and design Saskatchewan's first Geological Wall Calendar for 2016. The purpose of the calendar, apart from the obvious, is to educate the general public about Saskatchewan geology and its impact on our lives and prosperity. Monthly photos feature various scenes from the 3.4 billion years of Earth history thus far recorded in the province from microscopic scale to landscape views spanning the Precambrian Shield in the north to the southern prairies. 

In 2016 the Society printed 1000 calendars, most of which were sold, with some having been handed out free to schools across the Regina area.
